E.S.G Art Series: Ash, Graphic Designer

Art- the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.

The world of gaming and esports is undoubtedly one of the most influential cultural phenomena in the world today. Its reach spans every corner of the globe and has inspired millions in the form of every medium of content and pop culture, including art. E.S.G. honors this creative expression as we feature a community of talented artists, illustrators, and creatives who have used their vast imaginations to create stunning esports and gaming-related art.

One of my favorite things is to make advertisements. I find it really fun to take a product and be able to let your creativity run wild while also showcasing the product. — Ash 

I’d bet all of my editor’s life savings that this flavor of G FUEL packs a serious punch– literally. This exceptional design artistically articulates the parallel between an active volcano and an explosion of flavor and energy.

This design perfectly symbolizes the dynamic force universally recognized as the official energy drink of esports.

Whenever making this piece, my thought process was all over the place. I want this piece to tell people that sometimes it’s okay to let go and feel at peace. — Ash 

When I look at this piece, I think of a mind completely at ease. I think of an overwhelming serenity, tranquility, and calmness encompassing the soul. 


Well done.

The beauty of nature abounds all around us. This stellar display of craftsmanship uses the aesthetic of mother nature to give a whole new meaning to swag, and it gives it to Faze Swagg himself. #AirSwagg

I LOVE the whole Spider-Man and Venom franchises, so when this movie came, I had to make a poster for it! My favorite aesthetic is Cyberpunk, so I want{ed} to incorporate that into this piece as well. — Ash 

The fusion of Marvel’s Venom within a richly colored, hyper-futuristic neon cityscape is an invigorating visual to behold. Dope. 

I’m passionate about art because it allows me to release my creativity in a way that makes me and the people who support me happy. — Ash

I’ve always been a magic lover as a kid, so making this was really fun, as I was able to just play around with the piece. — Ash 

Azarath metrion zinthos type vibes. 😆

This piece got me like:

Star of wealth, burn so bright
Aid me in my spell tonight
Unite more money upon me
As I will it, so mote it be.

Ash is highly skilled in many categories of design, one of which is creating headers. His portfolio is full of SICK headers, including this one for one of the goats of Fortnite and FaZe, FaZe Sway.

Growing up I had ALL of the Sonic games. This movie inspired me to make this piece, and while it’s not one of my most complex, it’s still one of my favorites! — Ash 

I can definitely relate to growing up with Sonic the Hedgehog, and I along with millions of others was happy to see him on the big screen last year. This tribute to the legend and his film is as cool as the iconic blue hedgehog is fast. 

“Don’t just sit there and waste your precious time. When you want to do something, do it right away. Do it when you can. It’s the only way to live a life without regrets.” — Japanese tagline, Sonic the Hedgehog
